    to place the radiators I wil use hole originally used from the screw to hold the HD cages

    took the imprint to make the hole in the rad, and made M3 edging

    You have some nice things going on here. Not sure how the rads will handle all the heat though.
    Anyways, good job, keep it up! :thumb:

    Don't apologize for the English here. We come from everywhere! My English is bad because I'm from the US!

    Nice work so far. Keep us posted.

    I agree with jhanlon303. This is an International forum so, any english is good english as long as we can understand what it is you are trying to say. ;)

    I'd go with the second option... Makes for a better view of both reservoirs! :)

    Im a bit worried that both raditors blow inwards, wont that cause a huge build up of heat by the pumps and PSU? Im worried that it will vent into the main
    body and cook the computer

    Agreed. If all the fans are mounted in such a way that they are all pushing hot air into the case, its not good. Change direction of the fans on one radiator.
    Also, speaking about the reservoirs. Try mounting them as high up as possible, as it will make the loops easier to bleed.
